    It's pouty, it's pink, it's pretty darn good - Nintendo presents: New Style Boutique is the game to get your non-gamer sister / daughter / niece this Christmas, and they'll never know you've snuck them a shockingly hardcore management game with excellent production values.

    Fashion-Fans get a lot of tasks and may get inspired, what they could try out themselves.
  3. Ultimately scuppered by its lack of variety. [Christmas 2012, p.106]

    It doesn't seem like a game that is really THAT good or in depth like something from the imagine series, or some barbie game. Honestly theIt doesn't seem like a game that is really THAT good or in depth like something from the imagine series, or some barbie game. Honestly the only fashion nintendo games that could ever even almost match this is Pinky Street (and Kira Kira Night Fever). 12000 clothes to choose from!!! How amazing is that?! Gothic Loli clothes? Yep. Hippy clothes? Yep. Retro clothes? Yep. Girly clothes? Yep. Literally everything a fashion follower could dream of. You can even change their hair and makeup!!
    Although: It can get repetitive after about 20 straight hours of playing... and the people in this do kinda look creepy after a while.
    Other than that this game is flawless, 9/10, entertaining and so fun.

I played 28 hours of it and finished the game so I'd say it was quite enjoyable. I found myself getting into the shop management part of it and trying to attract different clientele. It wasn't all pink and rainbows either, I was happy to see you could actually create pretty great rock and goth outfits. I'm not sure what price tag I would put on it, I was happy playing around in it when it was free but I wouldn't pay launch retail for it. Full Review »
